Emir of Qatar tapes (Correction: Hamad Bin Jasim Tapes)

This is the biggest story in the Arab internet these days.  Someone in Libya (clearly not happy with the role of Qatar) has been releasing audio tapes of conversations between Emir of Qatar and Qadhdhafi.  They are now being circulated widely.  I can vouch for the authenticity: the words very much sound like the Emir of Qatar.  Here is a transcript for those who can't understand the accent or the audio.

PS Correction. The man on the tape is Hamad bin Jasim and not Hamad bin Khalifa.
